Help me find the perfect piano teacher!

I'm not totally sure what style I want to do yet, but I know I'd like to rock out a bit, perhaps learn blues and jazz accompaniment, and also constantly work on singing while playing. I'm really not excited by the prospect of Beethoven or Mozart, though the occasional foray into Satie would be fun. I hope one day to have the confidence to write simple pop/rock/folk songs, accompany other musicians with their own compositions, and play out. I'd love to become a competent sight reader as well. I'm a big fraidy-cat perfectionist about this stuff so practical help pushing me out of my comfort zone would be awesome (recitals?).
I have a strong musical background and can read bass/treble clef already, for whatever it's worth. My past experiences with piano haven't been great, but I'm hoping that if I get to dictate the material a bit more that perhaps I'll be able to enjoy myself. Would like the lessons to be in my home or in NW Seattle (Ballard, Greenwood, Phinney Ridge, Loyal Heights, Broadview).
